Having children is fun and difficult at the same time. Some of the many parents out there are designers and inventors, and this can lead to the appearance of some truly wonderful gadgets that our parents and grandparents could never have dreamed of.

We at Enlighten have put together a selection of some of the coolest things that are guaranteed to make the life of any parent a lot easier and more comfortable.

Illuminated balls


With these balls, children won’t be scared of the dark when they’re lying in bed or if they have to go to the bathroom at night.

A smart changing pad

Hatch Baby

This little mattress can work out your baby’s weight and height, his food schedule, and his daily routine. You can check all these things using your smartphone.

A super compact stroller


At first glance, this seems like any other stroller. But you can actually fold it up into such a compact little bundle that it will fit in your backpack. It weighs just four kilograms and has already set a world record for being the most compact stroller ever made.

A translator for your child’s cries


The Infant Cries Translator can offer four possible answers as to why your newborn baby is crying – and it gets the answer right with an accuracy rate of 92% – including from hunger, from pain, from tiredness, or because he/she needs their diaper changed. With time, it becomes less accurate, but even at four months old it still has an accuracy rate of 77%. When developing the app, its creators analyzed 200,000 recordings of newborn babies crying.

A self-heating bottle


This bottle allows you to heat up your kid’s drink anywhere, without any electric cables. It can heat something in just four minutes using a single-use cartridge containing just salt and water. The maximum temperature it can reach is 37°С.

A safety bracelet


A lost child is every parent’s nightmare. But this eventuality no longer appears so frightening now that a safety bracelet has been developed. Similar to a wristwatch and connected to a smartphone app, it can determine the location of your child. If your child moves beyond the app’s tracking radius, a warning signal is sent. You can connect anyone you trust to the system.

A thermometer sticker


This thermometer sticker allows you to check your child’s temperature when they get sick without having to disturb their sleep or force them to sit still. It sticks right on the skin and measures temperature with great accuracy. If the child’s temperature increases, parents will be warned through the accompanying smartphone app, which also saves all the changes in temperature that take place.

A smart toothbrush


This toothbrush can be connected to your smartphone using Bluetooth. It visualizes every movement made with it in 3D. Every time your child makes the right move, they earn points and even prizes, thereby turning brushing their teeth into a fun game.



For an infant that’s taking their first steps, the world is full of hazards, from sharp stones to rough carpets. These kneepads will help protect your child’s sensitive skin from becoming bruised and scratched.

Fun plates


These fun plates will turn dinner into a game – the perfect solution for all those moms who are tired of tantrums at dinnertime.

The feeding bottle that is also a spoon


This device is a hybrid of a spoon and a feeding bottle, which can be very convenient for use when you’re either traveling somewhere or out for a walk. If your child doesn’t eat everything, all you have to do is seal the lid and you can save what’s left until next time.

A pacifier and a teether all in one


This pacifier/teether can be stored in the fridge and also washed in the dishwasher. It affects all parts of the gums simultaneously, and its simple design means that there are few indents where microbes might build up.

A visual and sound projector


This projector is great for helping your baby fall asleep. It projects cute pictures onto the ceiling together with soothing sounds or a tender lullaby.

A fun feeding set


Does your child refuse to eat anything? Then fly the food over to them! This fun set can convince your kid to eat even the most unusual things they would normally categorically refuse.

Clothes with a built-in activity monitor


This special clothing with a built-in device for monitoring a child’s breathing and activity removes the need for parents to check how well their baby is sleeping at night. The device is in the shape of a turtle and records the baby’s breathing, position, and the temperature in the room, and passes on all the information to your smartphone.

A fun container for toys


With this frog-shaped container, you can scoop up all the bath toys in one simple movement, wash off the bubbles under the tap, and attach it to the wall ready for next time.

An automated baby rocker


This device can rock your baby for you, imitating the movements of your arms. All you have to do is attach it to the handle of their stroller, and then you can go about your own business.
